GD8000

Fully-Rugged Notebook

The GD8000 is designed for the rugged user and tested to military extremes.

Whether the GD8000 is used in a desert helicopter mission, a high security prison, or in a patrol car in northern Canada, one thing remains the same: the GD8000 will provide years of rugged use at a low cost of ownership.

 

High Performance Fully-Rugged Notebook

[GD8000 Product Tour]

 

RUGGED RELIABILITY  Bring on the temperature extremes, humidity, vibration, dust, drops and spills. Designed to meet and even exceed military rugged requirements (MIL-STD 810G), the GD8000 has the broadest range of rugged features in its class from the water tight case (IP65) and shock mounted display to the capability to withstand 48" drops. The GD8000 is the first fully rugged notebook to be tested by an independent lab for acoustic noise, resistance to fungus, contamination by fluids, and more. This notebook is sealed from the inside-out and includes an extra layer of protection from the elements with I/O covers. Another first for notebooks in this
category – I/O ports that actually work when coupled to peripherals.

ULTRA-VIEWABLE TOUCHSCREEN DISPLAY  Streaming sunlight may wash out other displays but you’ll still see the GD8000 screen with its award winning 13.3” DynaVue® touchscreen display.  So if you’re outside, or even near a window, in low light or bright, this screen shines.

COMPUTING PERFORMANCE  The GD8000 works as hard as you do, able to leverage multi-thread applications and complex video like moving GPS maps or scrolling license plate readers.  In fact, it can probably run circles around your desktop with the latest ultra-efficient Intel® 1.86 GHz low voltage SL9400 Core™2 Duo processor, an 1066 MHz Front Side Bus, 6MB L2 cache, up to 8GB DDR3 memory and the Intel GM45 Express Chipset.

COMPLETE WIRELESS CONNECTIVITY  No matter your network or preferred wireless technology, the GD8000 keeps you connected with up to four integrated wireless devices - WI-FI (WLAN), Cellular Data (WWAN*), GPS and Bluetooth with sophisticated RF shielding and noise filtering – your communication options cross the spectrum so you can count on coverage.

*WWAN currently only supported in North America for US-based Tier 1 Wireless Operators. For country specific support, please contact your local sales representative.

ERGONOMIC  Computers shouldn’t be uncomfortable. The GD8000 is the lightest, most durable fully-rugged notebook and even includes a full backlit keyboard so you can work efficiently and safely at night. PLus, you'll appreciate carrying the GD8000 via the integrated softgrip handle.

SECURITY  The GD8000 has security features designed to protect users, information and networks. It includes TPM 1.2 Network Security Standard, integrated fingerprint reader, integrated CAC (Smart Card) reader, a removable hard drive and security lock slot.

WARRANTY + SERVICE  A comprehensive suite of lifecycle and professional services are offered in addition to the standard 3-year warranty.

SAVING ENERGY  You can work longer while using less energy because the ENERGY STAR® certified GD8000 is designed with your productivity and the environment in mind. With sophisticated power management settings you can cut power consumption on both AC and battery, ultimately saving money while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.  Additionally, our packaging is designed to reduce environmental impact.
